Sustainable Harlem Volunteering, Food & Shopping Tour
A unique opportunity to experience impactful grass roots organizations in an important neighborhood.
Learn about the Harlem of today and yesterday on this special sustainable, social impact walking tour.
You will have an opportunity to learn about and volunteer with an important and impactful nonprofit that offers Harlem youth education in urban farming, nutrition and sustainability practices. The service project takes place at an urban farm in the heart of Harlem, NYC. Volunteers will assist with various aspects of gardening, farming and harvesting (depending on the time of year) as well as chicken care. We make a donation on your behalf that supports their mission and year-round programming for Harlem youth.
Next we grab lunch at a locally, black-owned and sustainable restaurant before making our way to a grassroots organization working in sustainable fashion.
The tour wraps with a couple opportunities to shop local.
We visit and learn about important historic Harlem events and sights along the way.
